Ep28: Celebrating Our National Nasi: Nasi Lemak

Ah, nasi lemak. It's a dish that—as even McDonald's can attest to—is undeniably Malaysian. And though we might know how and where to get the best nasi lemak, its history and cultural significance is a subject that is rarely talked about. So this week, in full Merdeka spirit, we seek to learn more about our national nasi from food historian Nadge Ariffin. We talk about the 5 key components of nasi lemak, the meaning behind its name, and its historical ties, with a cute little genesis story to boot.
